Graham Clark once again showcased the positive white ball cricketer he is in Durham’s Vitality Blast and Royal London Cup campaigns.
In the past 3 years Clark has always gone onto pass 250 runs scored in the Blast and this was the same in 2022 with 280 runs with a best of 65.
His 65 came in a high scoring clash at Headingley. Belligerent opener Clark was expertly backed up by second-wicket partner Ollie Robinson as Durham excelled with the bat, the pair sharing 92 inside nine overs to advance from 34 for one.
Clark reached his fifty off 27 balls uppercutting Bajan overseas debutant Dominic Drakes.
The Cumbrian was Durham’s leading run scorer in the Royal London Cup for the second consecutive season but Clark didn’t reach the highs of 2021 where he was the country’s leading run scorer with 646 runs at 80.75.
He averaged 35 in List A cricket in 2022 with 277 runs with 5 fifties along the way.
His top score of 86 came in Durham’s only win of the 2022 Royal London Cup in a 9-run thriller with Somerset at Taunton, while he also notched half centuries against Sussex, Gloucestershire and Warwickshire.
Clark didn’t feature for Durham in the 2022 County Championship only making first team appearances in white ball cricket – however he did score 327 runs for the seconds in the 2XI Championship at 40.87. He rounded the summer off with 111 against Nottinghamshire seconds at Lady Bay.
